SUMMER VIBES WITH LOUISE @MORTILMERNEE

The first in row of our summer guests is a person that is on our top 5 of Instagram accounts to check before the day starts: Louise @mortilmernee. Her Danish home makes us drool, her talent for styling makes us jealous and her way with words makes us laugh.

Earlier this year we asked her to share her home tour with us. Remember that beautiful wintery living room?
Well we are getting a very different vibe on her account this time of year as Louise is addicted to flowers and we want to know more about how she brings summer inside. So we asked her a few questions and styling tips to go with some exclusive photo’s of her home.

What are your plans this summer?

This summer we are driving to Italy and Austria to meet family. The feeling of just driving towards the sun is amazing and we love that the vacation starts as soon as you get into the car.
In september we will go to New York to spend nine days in this amazing city.  We love to visit big cities as a family. You can have some of the best talks with your kids when you walk around for hours. Both of us will be holding hands with one of our daughters and just walk, talk and see all day long. This is really the ultimate holiday for me.

How often do you change the set up at home?

Our house is really small, so moving around furnitures is really not that easy. Our sofa has been standing in the same place for 11 years now, just like the dinner table.  I often talk about how I would love to move it all around, but trust me, I’ve been there, done it and everything looks best the way it is.  Now I sort of gave up and like the way it all looks. But with books, pictures, flowers and small furniture I go all out.

How do you bring summer inside?

I love flowers with all my heart. All year long I have fresh flowers in the house yet the best season for me is when everything starts blooming outside. I love poppies, lilacs and all the wild flowers you can find everywhere, most of them found during a walk. Flowers inside helps to keep the summer season in as long as possible, even when it rains.

What’s you decorating tip?

To bring seasonal flowers in the house….. I promise you it will make you happy, and you house will smell fabulous too. If I don’t have wild flowers I will go to my favorite flowershop Poppykalas.

Any new furniture or changes this season?

Yes, that must be the “new” Wegner Y-chairs that I inherited from my grandmother who sadly passed away this spring.  They were my grandparents dining chairs so I have some mixed feeling about them as I miss my grandparents very much. Our family is very very small, so when you loose some, it seem like such a big loss.
On my decorating wish list is to either paint or change our kitchen doors. My husband does not totally agree with me, but I am working on it. Ikea just introduced some new wooden doors that I really like.

What is your perfect summer day?

A day with no plans at all. When the sun is out and the kids are in the pool, we will be outside all day, sitting on the terrace until the sun sets, around 11 pm in Denmark. Sadly the Danish climate does not give us many of these days, that’s why they seem so special and we make the absolute most of them.

HELLO HOLIDAYZZZ

Now that temperatures are souring in the Middle East, we have started to pack our bags to escape the heat. Another long summer holiday is on our door step, another climate waiting for us back home.
Where we have been wearing the same very light gear the last few weeks, we will need to think in shoes, long pants and sweaters again. With our new sneakers from Alex & Alexa are ready to travel. Although Dutch summers can be beautifully warm, there is always the chance of some chilly days with rain. And we love it!

The Live Loud Girl team will all be enjoying a European break filled with the necessary Dutch treats and French croissants. Yet before you start worrying that we will be bored for the coming nine (!) weeks, we would like to share what’s happening behind the scenes because our summer has never been so jam packed.

On the blog we will be sharing a high dose of summer vibes from some of our favorite Instagram inspirators.

Work wise we are packed with an amazing project in Saudi Arabia: the interior styling of a home with thirteen rooms that are waiting to be transformed.
When in Europe, shop like the Europeans. For this project we will start sourcing and searching for the perfect (vintage and new) items in Holland. Let us know if you have any tips of shops we should not miss…

You won’t even notice that we are away as we will keep you in the loop all through the coming two months. Make sure you subscribe to the blog to not miss out on any posts and follow us on Instagram and Stories.
Hopefully we will be inspiring (and entertaining) you this summer. We are looking forward to hearing from you from wherever you might be this summer!

Have a great summer!

LOUNGY LITTLE CONNOISSEURS

 

We are spending a lot (!) of hours inside at the moment. With the sun flaming and the aircon blazing, the boys are catching up on their reading when its just too hot to handle out there.

To make their room a bit more comfortable, we brought in two beautiful floor cushions from Little Connoisseur. The perfect thrown for lounging kids. The cotton cushions have such nice details like a golden exposed zip and a genuine leather adornment that can even be customized. Not a big surprise that our cushions say: PLAY and LOUD. And then we haven’t even mentioned the packaging… Get ready to be surprised!

STYLING PROJECT – JOTUN WONDERWALL & ROYAL VELVET

Ready, set, action!
We were so excited and honored to do our first styling job of a video shoot. We were asked to take care of the styling  for the setting of the online campagne for the launch of Jotun’s Wonderwall and Royal Velvet paint range starring beauty blogger @raniafawazz.

Jotun is a brand that we often work with (and for). Yet this being a video shoot did make things a bit more thrilling then usual. For weeks our mind was set on getting the perfect items and props together.
